[再穷也要去旅行] – 可遇不可求 冰岛极光Aurora Borealis

By , February 19, 2016 9:00 am

冬季到冰岛旅游的我们,也希望能够一睹极光的风采,但是极光实在可遇不可求。

一整个星期下来,我们每晚都轮流起床,摸黑偷看外头,希望那晚的我们是幸运的。

但是三月的冰岛天气变化多端,并不易碰见晴朗的夜空,到了最后,我们也就随缘。

One of the possible highlights of visiting Iceland in winter is catching the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis.

The Aurora is an incredible light show caused by collisions between electrically charged particles released from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere and collide with gases such as oxygen and nitrogen. The lights are seen around the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres.

For all those nights that we woke up, trying to catch a glimpse of the lights, we weren’t lucky at all.

March weather in Iceland is pretty crazy, as mentioned in most of my posts. To catch the lights, you need a very clear night.

在冰岛的最后一夜,我们兴致勃勃地前往晚餐的地点当儿,拨了电话给AirBnB的主人,说我们会晚些抵达。她说好,还加了”You guys will be in for some nice lights tonight!”。

这让我们兴奋极了,很急地吃下了丰盛的晚餐,快速前往靠近Keflavík机场的住宿。

On our last night in Iceland, we booked a nice dinner in Reykjavík, before heading to our AirBnB at Keflavík.

Made a courtesy call to the AirBnB owner, who gave us great news! “You guys will be in for some nice lights tonight!”

O.M.G

We couldn’t believe our ears, but dinner was a necessity as we were both famished. The drive to Keflavík was filled with anticipation.

在路上,我迫不及待一直把头往外伸。

看到了!看到了!远方的夜空中,有着一小片绿色。

And we spotted our first lights on the road. I was elated 🙂

Never did we know, it’s gonna be a great night.

终于,我们抵达了。站在屋外,就可以看到极光在我们的头上变化着。

下车后,和主人简单寒暄了,我们三人就出发去更暗的地方看极光。

在零度的冷夜里,极光在我们眼前翩翩起舞,整整120分钟的奇迹。

We reached the house, introduced ourselves to the host and drove out shortly after to a darker place.

It was really cold and windy, but also one of the most magical nights in my life.

The lights danced for a good 2 hours. We were freezing, but it was so worth it.

可惜,这次的旅程我没带单眼相机,但是聪明的他还是能够拍下珍贵的这一刻 🙂 好幸福。

The only regret was that we didn’t bring along a DSLR for this trip (I know right…) but my smart man still managed to catch us on the Fujifilm X30 🙂
